Visionary Integration Professionals Wins IV&V Work With California Health Benefit Exchange, CalHEERS

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 28, 2012) - The California Health Benefit Exchange selected Visionary Integration Professionals (VIP) to deliver independent verification and validation (IV&V) services for the California Healthcare Eligibility, Enrollment, and Retention System (CalHEERS).

The primary mission of CalHEERS, a consolidated information technology system, is to implement the requirements of the 2010 Federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which aims at decreasing the number of uninsured Americans and reducing the overall costs of health care.

As part of the IV&V scope of services, VIP will independently review and document its analysis of the CalHEERS processes, procedures, and tools to ensure adherence to industry standards.

More specifically, VIP is responsible for reviewing and reporting on project management, quality management, training, requirements management, software development, acceptance testing, and data management, as well as operating and development environments.

"We look forward to supporting the CalHEERS project, which will help millions of Californians make informed choices and obtain affordable health care coverage," said VIP Senior Vice President, Jeff Mullins

Mullins, a well-known healthcare expert, was hired by VIP in March to lead the further advancement of the company's presence in the healthcare space. This $1.2 million strategic win aligns with that objective.

"VIP has been providing IT consulting services on several key healthcare-related projects in California and has developed a thorough understanding of the business and technical environment," said VIP Director, Nishant Agrawal. "We are excited to help CalHEERS achieve its mission and aggressive timeline."

Jonna Ward, VIP's CEO and Founder, said her company has supported the state on some of its largest IT system implementations for over 16 years.

"We are particularly proud that 94.6 percent of our 2011 revenue came from customers who generated revenue for us in the prior year as well," said Ward. "We know this statistic is a measure of satisfaction and we're proud to be known as a loyal, reliable technology consulting firm in the state."
